Judges comments:
"The late Stieg Larsson created the groundbreaking, two-fingers-to-society, bisexual anti-heroine Lisbeth Salander. When Larsson's publishers commissioned a fourth book, they turned to David Lagercrantz, whose THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB often reads uncannily like Larsson's own text. His real achievement is the subtle development of Salander's character; she remains (in Lagercrantz's hands) the most enigmatic and fascinating anti-heroine in fiction."

David Lagercrantz is a Swedish journalist and best-selling author, internationally known as author of Zlatan Ibrahimović's biography and as the current writer of the MILLENNIUM series, originated by Stieg Larsson.

Summary

She is the girl with the dragon tattoo—a genius hacker and uncompromising misfit. He is a crusading journalist whose championing of the truth often brings him to the brink of prosecution.

Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker—a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it . . .
